Cast of Characters: *All 3 of these roles are open to any race*
PAUL SHELDON - Successful romance novelist who is kidnapped by Annie Wilkes. For most of the story he is weak and fragile, seeing that he barely survived a devastating car wreck, but grabs some courage along the way. Staying alive is his number one objective. Male, 40s-50s.
ANNIE WILKES - Crazed “number one fan” of Paul Sheldon. Manipulative, bossy, psychotic, with some anger management issues sprinkled on top. Frequently jumps from one side of the emotional spectrum to the other in a second. She has her rules about life and the behavior of others, and doesn’t like people going outside those barriers. Female, 40s-50s.
BUSTER - Officer investigating the disappearance of Paul. Grows more suspicious of Annie as the show goes on. Brave and loyal. Male, 30s-60s.
